A selection of fairy tales collected and edited by Scottish author Andrew Lang and his wife, Leonora Blanche Lang. The book is the first volume in a series of twelve “coloured” Fairy Books compiled by the Langs. Well known fairy tales such as Beauty And The Beast, Cinderella, and The Story of Pretty Goldilocks, as well as many lesser known tales, are contained within the pages.
First published in 1889, this edition is derived from the original book with 139 black and white illustrations by H. J. Ford and G. P. Jacomb Hood. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
